Uncovering The Truth About Most Popular Hair Myths


We bet you have heard them all. That washing your hair with a conditioner is harmful to oily hairs, and opting for therapies for laser hair growth can ruin it all. These follicular myths have been around for a long time. So long that we have accepted them as facts. 

But the truth is, the world is full of fake news, especially when it comes to taking care of your beautiful strands. So, here we are, to bust all those myths around you that have stopped you from giving the best to your hair. 

#1- Cut Your Hairs Frequently To Make Them Grow

We firmly believe that getting a trim every once a month can improve your hair growth and help you achieve the goal for long hair. However, trimming your hair every now and then has nothing to do with your hair growth. 

As a matter of fact, hair growth happens from the roots and not the end of your hair. So, cutting your hair ends, which are not even living entities, will not affect your hair growth. However, going for a trim once every 8 weeks can help you get rid of split ends and make them look more manageable and presentable. 

If you want to speed up your hair growth, try applying some aloe vera to your roots or use a product that contains blue-green algae. These products might be a little hard to find, but they can stimulate hair growth

#2- Frequently Shampooing Your Hair Can Damage Them

Contrary to the statement above, here’s an actual fact- how often you wash your scalp and hairs depends entirely upon you and your hair type. 

There’s no valid explanation behind the statement that shampooing can damage your hair. If you have greasy hair, you can wash them every day. However, if the texture is normal, you can skip a day or two and wash them when they start to feel greasy again. 

However, make sure to wash them regularly, as not washing your hair can lead to the accumulation of dead cells around your scalp, which can not only affect your hair growth but can also cause serious damage to the skin. 

#3- Laser Hair Growth Therapy Can Damage Your Hair

Believe it or not- this one is fake news. Laser hair therapy is the easiest and most painless way to treat hair loss. The therapy irradiated photons into your scalp to improve the blood flow near the follicles and improve hair growth. It is often recommended if you have bald patches on your head. 

However, once you get the therapy done, you must follow all the safety procedures like using the recommended shampoo and other products according to your hair specialist. 

#4- Stress Can Cause Gray Hair

It’s true that our lifestyle affects our hair health. But, the graying of hair is based on the process of aging and how genetics affect your hair. 

Factually, your hair produces melanin, responsible for your hair color. But as you age, the melanin secretion decreases, which causes the hair to turn gray. 

Stress can definitely speed up the aging process and may cause your hair to turn gray if they are already producing less melanin. But there is no scientific explanation behind the fact that stress is the cause of gray hair. 

#5- Quit Conditioner If You Have Greasy Hair

In short, fake news. Greasy hair is caused by the overproduction of sebum by your scalp tissues which lead to the accumulation of oil near your roots. 

In fact, greasy hair or not, a conditioner can provide your hair with the needed dose of nourishment. It is, however, recommended to choose a conditioner that is for your hair type. 

The Takeaway

So, there you have it. The things you believed were right for your hair were actually harming them. However, it’s never too late to provide the best to your hair. Shampoo them often, go for a trim whenever you want and opt for laser hair growth therapy if you like. 

The key is to choose the products that are made for your hair type and stick to one brand rather than trying them all.
